5, 2015 @ 1:33 am By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Posted Jan. 5, 2015 @ 1:33 am Social News NEW YORK (AP) The first batch of NHL All-Stars has a distinct Windy City feel as five members of the Chicago Blackhawks are among the initial six selections for the midseason showcase. Blackhawks forwards Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook, and goalie Corey Crawford earned spots Saturday based on fan voting. The only non-Chicago All-Star in the group is Buffalo Sabres center Zemgus Girgensons, who was the leading vote-getter in the six-week campaign with 1,574,896. The All-Star game, the NHL’s first in three years, will be held on Jan. 25 in Columbus, Ohio. The remaining roster of players will be announced on Jan. 10. Kane (1,232,201 votes) and Toews (1,217,210) finished second and third behind Girgensons. Keith (1,198,173) was next, and first among defensemen, and followed by Seabrook (1,016,992), who was sixth overall. Crawford (1,099,504) was one spot ahead of him to win the goalie vote. source: http://www.herkimertelegram.com/article/20150105/SPORTS/150109839/2000/NEWS

Blackhawks win 5-4 in OT, end Stars’ 4-game streak | Boston Herald

Chicago leads the league with a 2.15 goals-against average but has surrendered 20 goals over its last six games. The Blackhawks are looking to bounce back following Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to Colorado. Chicago recorded a season-high 54 shots but was blanked by Semyon Varlamov in suffering its first shutout since Nov. 2. Corey Crawford allowed both goals in the opening 1:17. The Blackhawks have given up the first goal in five straight games. “It’s frustrating,” forward Patrick Sharp told the team’s official website. “I think we can do a better job of getting to the net. I think the most frustrating part is the way we started the game again. Being down 2-0 quick like that changes the whole way the game is going to be played from there on out. We did generate a lot of shots on net. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blackhawks-wild-preview-235401714–nhl.html

“Just have to find better ways to lock those down.” Lehtonen made 33 saves, while Chicago’s Corey Crawford blocked 30 shots. Blackhawks top prospect, forward Teuvo Teravainen, played his first game of the season. The 20-year-old was recalled from Rockford of the AHL after forward Kris Versteeg suffered a left hand injury when he was hit by a shot in Thursday’s Winter Classic in Washington. Versteeg is expected to be out for “about a month,” according to coach Joel Quenneville. Jamie Benn opened the scoring 3:59 in when he buried a rebound from the edge of left circle into an open net. Crawford had to react quickly to make a pad save on Tyler Seguin’s initial deflected shot from 20 feet out in slot, and wasn’t able to recover. Saad muscled to the net, fought off Stars defenseman Trevor Daly and directed in Jonathan Toews’ centering pass 1:15 later to tie it at 1. Defensive breakdowns lead to a scoring flurry early in the second. Jordie Benn, a defenseman, trailed into the slot and scored his first goal of the season 2:15 into the period to complete a slick three-way passing play with Cole and Ales Hemsky to put Dallas ahead 2-1. No Blackhawks forwards backchecked on the Stars’ rush. source: http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/nhl_coverage/2015/01/blackhawks_win_5_4_in_ot_end_stars_4_game_streak
